A spring hike is never wrong. Here I am sending some highlights from one of the most beautiful protected areas in Skåne, where I live. It is known for its biodiversity and its many pasqueflowers. My Silent Sunday was photographed there too.
About three hours later, we are back at the gate. This part of the hike goes through an area with foreign trees brought here from all over the world.
So, hope you enjoyed the tour, thank you for walking with me! These few images hopefully show some of the National Park’s great diversity.

Wow! Such beautiful pictures!
Thank you – it’s a joy hiking there in spring especially.
This park is stunning! The flowers in your photos are so beautiful.
I am glad you liked it, Anne! Thank you. I love hiking there, especially in spring.
My cousin lives near Alingsås off a dirt road and between the two of you I have to assume that all Swedes live in forests with exquisite forest walks and houses full of plants… Beautiful!
Ha – of course all Swedes do! ;-D ♥
It’s easy to see what a beautiful place for a walk this is. I love all the flowers, but especially those purple pasqueflowers – I’ve only ever seen white ones!
Oh, we have only purple ones in the wild!
I would love to to hike there. Thanks for taking us along through your beautiful pics. 😊
Thank you for coming along!
oooh.. a perfect pasqueflower.. what a vision of beauty!!!
What a delightful walk, Ann- Christine! The photos reminded me of the difference between the Indian jungles in summers and your forest up in the north.
Needless to say, the images are stunning. From cool greens to delicate flowers, it is a treat to read your posts. Incidentally, last Sunday was International day for Biological Diversity and its theme for the year, building a shared future for all life. Goes well together, right?
Let’s keep building a sustainable environment. Thank you for your lovely comment! So grateful to see Indian jungles and American forests and Nordic forests and…thanks to blogging.
You capture the magic and the mood exquisitely, Ann-Christine. I love looking over your shoulder.
Cool, green, energizing . . . thank you for the treat of walking alongside you 🙂 ! Since I do use a ‘third leg’ these days even n flat ground this is no longer possible for yours truly so ‘your way’ is ‘my way’ !!! Had absolutely no idea any kind of orchids lived so far north . . . lovely . . .
I am glad my way can sometimes be yours, Eha! So grateful for your company! ♥ And we have an abundance of orchids in early summer here.
What an absolutely wonderful place, A C!
Thank you – it is!
And I went to a wonderful place yesterday, seemed like another world!
Are you there, Sue?
That tree stump is magnificent. It must be so peaceful hiking there
Very peaceful – and beautiful. Thank you for coming along with me!
Oh such a beautiful hike. Love walks like this at this time of year
Me too, it is the best time of the year. Glad you came along with me!
It was a lovely walk that you took us along for, Ann-Christine. But I missed Milo. 🙂
Ah, thank you, Steve. My husband took Milo so that I could make some photos – we did not walk together all the time. I will think of always having a Milo photo as well…
One of the YouTube photographer vloggers I watch is Simon Baxter. Although I do enjoy his photography and the conversation he has with us, it is his dog ”Meg” who steals the show most often. Dogs make everything better. 🙂
I love that quote from you, and I use it often with my friends : Dogs make everything better.
Thanks for this nice tour and the beautiful pictures. A lovely park !
Thank you for coming with me!
Beautiful hike! I am a lover of trees, so you can imagine which captures I love the most!
I can! Thank you!
Gorgeous and exactly my sort of place to wander. Do you have to worry about ticks?
Glad you came along, Janet! You have to worry about ticks if you are not vaccinated. But I am.
Beautiful shots, Leya 👏 We get the ww marsh orchids here as well 😃
Thank you, Jez. I forget where you live and have to go back to find it!
Just wonderful. What a treat to see thanks Ann-Christine 🙂 🙂
Thank you for walking with me, Brian – I bet you would have liked it.
I so would have 🙂
